OWS had some Paulite support, so no, I wouldn't say so.  It's more anti-establishment than pro-left.

He's certainly a Democrat, at least on domestic issues. He'd end up being one of those hawk Democrats, like Feinstein

This is a fantastic timeline! I especially enjoy the very detailed legislative events and superb research behind them!

Unless Joe Miller is the nominee (which is certainly plausible) the GOP will pick up Alaska.

Landrieu is going down, the question is whether this race makes it to a runoff...

Hagan loses to almost everyone in the Republican field if the climate is as-is in November.

Booker won't win with 60% (probably more 56-58%) and Cornyn won't win with 70% (and probably not 60% either). In fact, I could see him struggle to hit 55% against Rogers, given Rogers is more conservative than he is.
Seems about right, though I think that John Cornyn will receive around 57-58% of the vote against Kesha Rogers.

What are some of the events of President Romney's first term?

we need more norm colemans and less ted cruzs in the gop
I agree with you on that point 100%

very horrible.

but i would have voted for her over the man who went to the senate floor and claimed the iraq war was lost.
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Shattering the Ceiling: Clinton wins in 2008! on: April 22, 2014, 05:24:50 pm
If Hillary won decisively, what was the percentage between her and McCain in 2008:
A. 55-43
B. 60-38
C. 57-41

55-43 seems about right.

I'm expecting Roy Cooper to take over from NC Governor McCrory in 2016.
I forgot to mention Roy Cooper in my post. It looks likely that Pat McCrory will lose re-election in 2016 due to his increasing unpopularity.

What state do you believe will trend the most to Hillary and what state do you think will trend the most Republican in 2016?
13  General Politics / Economics / Re: US budget deficit down more than 31% in first 6 months of FY2014 on: April 21, 2014, 02:10:09 pm
This news about the deficit goes directly against many arguments on the right that say that Obama is a big spending socialist.
14  General Discussion / Constitution and Law / Re: Worst SCOTUS cases on: April 21, 2014, 02:05:12 pm
Based on the ruling:

Dred Scott v. Sandford
Plessy v. Ferguson
Roe v. Wade
I would also add the Civil Rights cases of 1883, in which the Supreme Court invalidated most of the Civil Rights Act of 1875, which indirectly led us down the road to institutionalized discrimination against African-Americans.

I feel that Elizabeth Warren may run in 2020 if a Republican is elected in 2016 and ultimately has a failed term in office.

Good Timeline. I like McCain as VP but Allen kind of puts me off. Not sure who I would support in this timeline, Allen or Clinton.
I am not really sure who I would support either. George Allen hasn't been too bad on domestic policy, but his foreign policy has been a bit too hardline for my tastes. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton might not be all that different on foreign policy than Allen.

I will probably wait to see it until it's out on Blu-Ray or broadcasted on TV.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Most vulnerable Southern state for Republicans on: April 20, 2014, 07:48:41 am
Easily Virginia and closely followed by North Carolina and Georgia. I can see Virginia becoming a likely Democratic state in the future and North Carolina and Georgia eventually becoming lean Democratic states. The other Southern states are almost 100% assured to go Republican by a landslide margin even if a far-right candidate like Ted Cruz, Mike Pence or Rick Santorum gets the Republican nomination.

I support it strongly, but do not know what would be the most effective way to implement in every state.
24  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Which city should host the UN. on: April 19, 2014, 11:56:56 pm
Either in New York or Geneva, like the old League of Nations.
